"...Laura Cheetham’s Musetta proved to be a welcome debut with the company, with many in the audience very impressed by her singing – and her costumes." La Boheme, Guildford Opera Company, Sardines Review (2014)

"Laura Cheetham - recently with the English National Opera - played the coquettish Musetta, effortlessly establishing her role. Admittedly it is a gem of a part but I have seen it thrown away. Cheetham, however beguiled and taunted Alcindoro, ultimately winning back Marcello." La Boheme, Guildford Opera Company. Surrey Advertiser. (2014)
